Gourmet food, Balkan and Palestinian style

Something readers might find of interest: Over at Foreign Policy, I just wrote a piece on new states and territories trying to elbow their way into the US gourmet food market. Although much of the article focuses on the Balkans, there’s also a fair amount of discussion of Palestinian companies at Whole Foods and elsewhere.

For the record: If any enterprising Palestinian businessperson can bring some proper kanafeh to American supermarkets, they’ll be in my debt forever.
